Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 30th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up

A surprising week this week – I was expecting it to be a little quieter than usual. Instead we get MOTHER 3 lookalike games on the DS, the EB Anthology released to the public, EarthBound Zero prototypes for sale, and more.

I know not everyone keeps up with all this stuff though, so let’s take a quick look at what’s happened this past week:

Site News

  • September is coming up, which means new automatic site design. It feels like we’ve been in Dalaam forever.
  • Been slacking on MOTHER 1+2, mostly because I’m working on stuff that’s more important at the moment.
  • Passed the two million hits mark this past week.
  • Here are a bunch of EarthBound Central banners that people made!

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

Here’s some cool stuff that popped up on eBay this week.Remember that you can check to see what EarthBound/MOTHER stuff is currently on eBay at any time here!

And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

Here’s some stuff on Amazon:

Community News

I’m running at 88 mph, so I can’t possibly keep up with every single thing that happens in the EarthBound community, so if you’ve done something cool or if you know of something cool that belongs here, let me know!

What’s Up With Itoi

  • This week, Itoi talked about how when he was young, he wanted to become a manga artist. He would draw a lot and work really hard at it, and he even made two manga books during college that weren’t very interesting. If he could, he would go back and tell his younger self that he should keep looking harder for what he REALLY wants to do, because it’s a part of manga but not manga itself. The answer being writing of course.
  • He also talked about how apparently the number of company presidents in Japan is the same as the number of high school students in Japan, somwhere around 3.5 million. Of course, most of those companies are very small, but it was still interesting to read about.

Upcoming Stuff

Nothing planned at this time, we’ll just play it by ear.


I have so little time for MOTHER 1+2 that I might get a group of people together to help me out with it soon.

Also, Ness has a red hat. I don’t. Do you?

Hats mess up my hair, so I don’t have a red cap.

Who drew that picture up top?

I thought this might be a good place to ask, if not delete the comment, but is anyone else going to PAX? I’m not able to make it to the fangamer panel and I’ll be there on saturday, so I just wanted to know if anyone else here is going to be there.

Actually, yes, I have a red hat. It was brown at first, but I painted over it for my Ninten cosplay.

I do in fact have a red hat, thanks to Fangamer. 😉

Don’t worry about getting MOTHER 1+2 done too quickly, Mato; quality is what counts, and after playing twice through MOTHER 3 I know that you are fully capable of amazing work, and you need enough time to make sure you’re satisfied with it.

Dammit, Mato, stop posting mouth-watering links to merch that I inevitably will try to buy…EB Prototypes included! D:
